Riverfront, dog-friendly home with deck, kayak, dock, firepit & serene views

Rustic and eclectic, this riverfront home is the former residence of author Janwillem van de Wetering, who wrote many of his books here. Bring your own unfinished manuscript and work on it surrounded by 29 serene acres. If you’d rather commune with nature, bald eagles nest nearby and you’ll rarely go a day without seeing them. This quiet, unique space is a place for days spent swimming or fishing off the seasonal dock, going for a paddle with the provided kayak or paddleboard, and finding all the shopping and dining you need in nearby Ellsworth.

At the home itself, spend your time relaxing on the waterfront deck with morning coffee, gathering around the firepit each night, and listening to the sounds of nature all around you. Inside, hardwood floors, lots of natural light, and an open layout imbue the space with a cozy cabin vibe. Use the kitchen to whip up your favorite recipes, grab a book from the large library, or use the complimentary high-speed WiFi to stream the latest release. Keep dinner simple on the gas grill, then watch the stars rise over the river before bed. You’ve found the peaceful getaway you’ve been searching for - all that’s left to do is book it.
